I have been having a numb feeling in my left leg for about 2 months - on and off. I'm am a 28 y/o female.

My general physician conducted a fiber, and cotton test to test my feeling in my foot. Both of which I passed. The then conducted a vibration test with a tuning fork, on various bones along my foot. I was not able to feel any of the vibrations on my left foot.

He referred me to a specialist in a near by city (I am from a small town)... and the specialist came and did nerve conduction studies and an EMG on my left leg. All results came back showing I had healthy nerves.

My doctor is now recommending that I see a Nuerologist.

Has anyoen gone through this before, does it seem like it's a nerve issue, or nuerologic issue?

I really want to get down to what is causing the numbness as it is starting to affect my work and home life - and is definately dampening my spirit.. I just want to figure out what's wrong with my leg so that I can fix it.. or move on..

Any ideas of what this might be - would be greatly appreciated... I haven't found any help online in researching.

  • HiIt could be related to a slipped disc or spinal stenosis, although you don't mention any back problems. MS will need to be ruled out too I expect.I hope you get some answers soon, as it must be very worrying for you.
